The Kids Speak Out!
Before the last trip to Ghana, Leah did an interview where she explained that when she grew up, she wanted to be a writer as well as a teacher of the Deaf in Africa. She explained why she was going, and what she hoped she could change for those children. The interview is as relevant to the upcoming trip in 2012 as it was back then:
Rory, the daughter of Carissa Martos, the Foundation’s Academy Outreach Coordinator, also wanted to explain why her parents were heading to Africa, and what they hoped to accomplish there. Rory’s too young to go on the trip, but she’s been fundraising, telling her friends, and “helping” her parents pack.
The wisdom, in being able to recognize the goals of the trip, is matched only by the heart this teen and young child have for others.
